2014 Chateau Cornut Costieres de Nimes, France
On Sale $10.99
Half Syrah, half Grenache… juicy plum and cherry flavors spiced with juicy roasted herbs and pepper, this wine is distinguished by its polished, savory texture and a full, rich finish. The wine is aged in stainless steel and cement. Most of the 200-plus acres in production are characterized by ancient riverbed soils, similar to what is found in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
2013 Montirius “Le Cadet” Vin de Pays de Vaucluse, Rhone
On Sale $13.99
A blend of Grenache and Syrah. This red from Montirius (Le Cadet = “The Youngest”) comes from 60 year old vines and is aged in concrete, so has no oak influence. It is fruity and approachable on the palate, with notes of dark berries and tobacco.
2014 Domaine de Mongillon Cotes du Rhone Villages, France
On Sale $11.99 lowest price in the country!!!
Visan which enjoys one of the higher vineyard altitudes in the Côtes du Rhône. The wines from Visan’s windswept vineyards are generally described as lively and fresh, presenting full ripeness and great balance. Delectable cherry notes with hints of herbes de Provence, this wine shows good structure and is not at all heavy… an easy-drinking wine vinified in stainless steel and cement tanks to retain its fresh and fruity character.
2014 Savino Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie
On Sale $7.99 lowest price online is $11.99!!

The Savino Pinot Grigio leads with a warm, pale yellow color and an enduring, fruity bouquet. The palate is dry, balanced, and soft, with delightful notes of pear and citrus throughout. It is the perfect accompaniment to fish and grilled vegetables, though it can also be enjoyed as an apéritif.
